USS Avenger and USS Guardian
In June 2011, the USS Avenger and USS Guardian, AVENGER class Mine Countermeasures Ships of the United States Navy visited SihanoukVille, Cambodia as part of the Western Pacific Deployment. Sailors will take part in training, Project Handclasp, and warfare workshops.
The U.S. crews met with the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces (and some Vietnamese military as well) for a welcoming ceremony aboard the ships (which was rained out and held at New Beach Hotel, only meters from the SihanoukVille Port.
We're always happy to host the Sailors in SihanoukVille, so next time please come in the Winter (when it's not raining) and stay a while!
Thanks to the crews from Avenger and Guardian for all your help, and hope to see you back soon.
